This individual has a passion for seeing stories in every conversation, finding the right ones for our audience and telling them in whatever format fits the angle best.

  • Collaborate with colleagues to develop and drive strategic content communications plans including the development, process, implementation and measurement of the Epsilon content calendars

  • Builds relationships across their organization, handling feedback and adjustments with ease and a defined point of view
  • Thrives in fast-paced environments; is flexible and able to roll with changing scenarios
  • Is a change agent: Sees ambiguity as an opportunity as opposed to a hurdle, thrives on challenging themselves to push beyond conventional thinking
  • Is a problem solver: Makes things happen and works well with others to build constructive and effective relationships
  • Seeks initiative: Volunteers readily, undertakes self-development activities, seeks increased responsibilities, takes independent actions and calculated risks
  • Is detail-oriented, someone who rolls up their sleeves and gets the job done
